Officers investigating a shoplifting offence in Bournemouth are releasing CCTV images of the suspects.
Images can be seen via the Dorset police website here.
At 1.50pm on Wednesday 30 March 2022 two women entered River Island in Commercial Road, selected numerous items of clothing and handbags and took them into the changing room. It is reported both women later left the store carrying a large bag, believed to contain the items, without making any attempt to pay.
Staff reported that 61 handbags and 21 items of clothing were taken from the store, worth approximately £2,000.
Police Community Support Investigator Rich Frew, of Dorset Police, said: “This appears to have been a planned operation by these two women, who seemed to be working together.
“I am now in a position to release CCTV images of the suspects and I am appealing for anyone who may recognise them to please contact Dorset Police and assist my investigation.”
